Barcelona – the place that stole my heart

Last week I went for a short trip to Barcelona – my favorite city! If you don’t know yet,  before I moved to Tel Aviv I was living there for a few years and I have to say that since I left I’ve been missing that place almost every day! There are SO many reasons one can love Barcelona, I will tell you why I do.

Barcelona is situated on the Mediterranean shore and the weather is nice for most of the year 🙂 You can enjoy the beach and sun all year round; even during the winter it’s usually not too cold for having a nice walk on the beach. Barcelona is also very multicultural – people from all over the world come to live there and it makes that city so unique! So many languages, different cultures, religions and ways of living are coexisting there. I remember when I came to the city for the first time I was very amused by that and I felt that no matter what you do and who you are you can find something for yourself in Barcelona. And so I did. And instead of staying 3 months I stayed more than a year and after the next two years I came back again to do my master’s degree there. Barcelona feels like a second home for me, I know all the small streets, bars with cheap Mojito and cool places to shop. Even if I go there as a tourist and take a lot of new pictures I really don’t feel like one – I feel like I’ve never left that place and I really belong there. Sometimes I laugh and say that I was born in Poland by mistake and even that I can’t say that I feel more Spanish than Polish I can definitely say that living in Barcelona has changed me, my way of seeing things and living life. One day I would like to have a wooden house on the beach close to Barcelona. Hopefully sooner than later 😉

    Loved the Plaça de Sant Felip Neri photo!!! It’s my favorite square in Barcelona. The bike one is also amazing but I’m not sure about the place… somewhere around El Born? Great images!!!
